We at All Out Football posed the simple question on our Twitter account, who should feature in our best Premier League XI side? The top tier certainly differs from the Football League, with a clear set of candidates standing out from the rest. Nonetheless here is the verdict the football community came to.
Goalkeeper – David De Gea
In a shoot out between the Spaniard and Lloris, De Gea takes the place between the sticks. His shot stopping is unprecedented and has been crucial for winning points for Manchester United which is invariably why he has been voted to wear your number 1 jersey.
Right Back – Hector Bellerin
Since Bellerin’s emergence into the Arsenal first team as a teenager, he hasn’t looked back since and continues to improve. So much so that he’s been recognised as the best right back in the league by voters.
Centre Back – Toby Aldeweireld
It’s no surprise to see Spurs possess one if not the greatest defence in the league with Alderweireld at the heart of it. The Belgium international was the standout choice among fans.
Centre Back – Laurent Koscielny
The Frenchman beat the impressive Van Dijk to this spot and is regarded as a key member of Arsenal. Since signing from Lorient he has established himself as a leading centre half full of technical and physical qualities.
Left Back – Danny Rose
Comfortably voted the best left back in the league, Rose is a crucial part of Spurs development under Pochettino and has developed rapidly himself becoming a real outlet on the left at White Hart Lane.
Central Midfielder – N’Golo Kante
The standout choice in central midfield, it would have been hard not to pick Kante after the last season and a half he has had in England.
Central Midfielder – Paul Pogba
He may have come under a lot of criticism since joining Manchester United but he is still clearly recognised as a talent by football fans as he partners fellow Frenchman Kante in the middle of the park.
Left Winger – Alexis Sanchez
The Arsenal forward has been fantastic this season, playing as a striker or in his more familiar left wing position. There’s a lot to admire about the former Barcelona man and that’s widely appreciated with his selection in this talented team.
Attacking Midfielder – Kevin De Bruyne
The Belgium international cost Manchester City a lot of money but you can’t argue that he’s not been worth it. His supreme intelligence has made him one of the league’s standout performers after there were a few doubters following a departure from Chelsea.
Right Winger – Eden Hazard
Voters certainly wouldn’t have based their decision off last season but everyone knows just how good Hazard is, he’s brought that to the table this season and it’s no surprise to see Chelsea are a big force once again as a result.
Striker – Sergio Aguero
Little justification is needed with Aguero’s selection, he bangs goals in for fun and has been one if not the best strikers in the league for quite some time.
